EAT

Carbs for a Cause
Pizza Persona 614 W. Diversey Parkway 773-327-8500

Satisfy your cravings and help a good cause when you choose a made-to-order vegetarian, carnivorous, gluten-free or dessert pizza priced from $5-$9—such as a Camper, made with graham crackers, chocolate sauce and marshmallows ($5)—and partial proceeds benefit the Wish for Wendy softball tournament, a fundraiser for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. 11 a.m.-10 p.m.

Take the Cake
The Hideout 1354 W. Wabansia Ave. 773-227-4433

Jump back into the era of grade-school games during Cakewalk, where you stroll the room in a circle as '50s tunes play, freeze when the music stops and if you're standing on the randomly drawn lucky number, you win a free cake donated by a local bakery. Vegan and gluten-free options are included. 6-8 p.m. Donations accepted.

DRINK

Tiny Bubbles
Untitled 111 W. Kinzie St. 312-880-1511

Sip in style from the Drink Pink menu, which features Moet & Chandon rosé ($18 per glass; $89 per bottle) or brut ($18 per glass; $76 per bottle) and receive a Moet "lucky bubble" that could win you prizes. Bonus: Partial proceeds benefit the Bright Pink breast cancer campaign. 4:30 p.m.-1 a.m.

DO

It's True
Raven Theatre 6157 N. Clark St. 847-556-8679

Chicago Slam Works kicks off its season with Two Sides, where six performance poets pair up with six professional storytellers—including "The Encyclopedia Show" co-founder Tim Stafford and "This Much Is True" co-host Deanna Moffitt—for true tales of childhood, heartbreak, aging and everything in between. 7:30 p.m. $14.

Happy Bday, Brett

Hairpin Arts Center 2800 N. Milwaukee Ave. 773-769-7540

In our favorite mash-up this week, Striding Lion Performance Group and Voice of the City arts alliance present Vaudeville Roars—and a celebration of former NFL quarterback Brett Favre's 43rd birthday. See nine, five-minute solo and multidisciplinary acts at different locations throughout the space with breaks to grab drinks and hear mini-tributes to the birthday boy. 7:30 p.m. $10; $5 for students.
